A rehabilitated Grinch helped save Christmas in a video posted Friday by the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office.
In the three-minute video bringing awareness to the Hidalgo County Crime Stoppers hotline, the Grinch strikes a deal with Hidalgo County District Attorney Ricardo Rodriguez and Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra.
“We need your help,” Rodriguez tells the Grinch. “We need to crack down on the criminal organizations that are breaking into houses and stealing the presents from our children, and you’re the Grinch that can help us—so I am here to offer you a deal.”
During a sting operation, the Grinch helps the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office take down “Big Lou”, the criminal behind present thefts.
The Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office encourages anyone with information about a crime who wishes to remain anonymous to contact the Hidalgo County Crime Stoppers hotline at 956-668-TIPS.
